Animefringe Reviews!

A real bumper crop of reviews for y'all this month -- the most important of which being, without doubt, the brand-new Akira: Special Edition DVD! Like so many of us who got our anime start with Akira, this is certainly a must-buy. Also worth noting this month is the start of a new feature on the site -- Each month we review a different Japanese snack food, and each month YOU get the chance to order that very same item from at an astounding 30% discount! Enjoy!

As usual, we're willing to review anything you'll like from Japan. That includes ANYTHING -- Anime, Manga, canned beverages, toothpaste, music... anything. We mean it. So, if you have a review you'd like to see on Animefringe (we'll put it right here on this page with the rest of the month's reviews...) don't be afraid to send it over...

Akira: The Special Edition DVD

If you don't buy the remastered version of Akira on VHS or DVD then you can't possibly consider yourself an otaku. Pioneer has meticulously remastered, redubbed, and resubtitled the entire movie and given fans exactly what they never knew they wanted in the form of a second disc full of extras. Do yourself a favor and make a shrine for this one on a shelf.

Wizard: Anime Invasion Vol.1, #1

Wizard: The Comics Magazine came from humble beginnings and has become one of the most read and respected sources of comics information -- but does it have what it takes to cut it in the anime field? Wizard's latest spin-off magazine, Anime Invasion, seeks to test the violent waters that many other magazines have been shipwrecked in.

Pokémon Crystal

It's got the first playable female trainer and a cool 'crystal' title. It's Pokémon, and you know little kids will buy it just because they can. Not much is new in this effort for one of Nintendo's flagship series, but Pokémon Crystal is a solid game for the Gameboy Color or GBA on it's own merits.

Sapporo Ichiban Ramen (Chicken)

Ramen, or "gakusei ryori" ("student cuisine") as many like to call it due to its el cheapo price, is a staple in the diets of not just otaku, but anyone who likes a good noodle-based snack. When Animefringe got their hands on some of what's supposed to be the best ramen around, Sapporo Ichiban, we just had to put in our two cents.
